Richardson rides to URSS win at Liberal
LIBERAL, Kan. Mother Nature didn't spoil the fireworks Sunday. Steven Richardson and Ty Williams made sure of that.
The United Rebel Sprint Series returned to Liberal Fairgrounds Speedway on Sunday after being rained out of the regularly scheduled event Friday.
And the Rebels didn't disappoint as Richardson and Williams put on a classic battle up front before Richardson held on for the victory.
We swapped positions a few times in a couple of laps, Richardson said. It was kind of one lane around the top. You had to be careful not to jump the cushion. It should have been a great race for the fans. click here for the story
Blurton Wins URSS Go in Dodge City
Zach Blurton took top honors at the Jerry Soderberg Memorial at Dodge City Raceway Park on Saturday night topping a field of 33 cars.
In the 30-lap United Rebel Sprint Series main event, fourth-starter Taylor Velasquez battled past pole starter Lance Davis on the high side on the fifth round and led the rest of the way for his apparent second series win of the season at DCRP.
But when Velasquez rolled across the scales below the 1,550 pound minimum, the $1,000 victory went to Jetmores Zach Blurton to make him the ninth different winner in the last nine URSS events at Dodge City Raceway Park. click here for more
Trimble surges to win at Fort Morgan
FORT MORGAN, Colo. Inches perhaps less separated Adam Trimble from disaster.
But that close call at the start of the race Saturday at I-76 Speedway in Fort Morgan, Colo., only served as a wake-up call for Trimble, who went on to notch his third United Rebel Sprint Series victory of the year.
Trimble started deep in the pack and narrowly avoided spinning cars before the first lap was complete. In fact, he had to shoot down into the infield to avoid Zac Taylor's car. It was perhaps the winning move of the night.
On the restart, Trimble bolted to the front and held off Jake Bubak for the win.
Hathaway lovin' dirt, 1st URSS win
CALHAN, Colo. The final result was a surprise to Mike Hathaway.
The former asphalt driver now competing with the United Rebel Sprint Series picked up his first series victory Saturday night in a non-wing show at El Paso County Speedway in Calhan, Colo.
It feels really good, he said. I'm shocked. I didn't expect to be that fast that quick. I'm coming from an asphalt late model background, and we changed gears this year and got into a sprint car.
Bubak prevails at Fort Morgan
FORT MORGAN, Colo. It took nearly half a season for Jake Bubak to capture his first United Rebel Sprint Series victory this season.
That was a little too long for the reigning URSS national rookie of the year.
But since that time, Bubak has added two more wins the latest coming Sunday night at I-76 Speedway in Fort Morgan, Colo.Click here for more

But the veteransprint car driver didn't have the win just given to him.
